I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers...

 I love October. I love Autumn. I love pumpkins. One thing I don't love is Halloween because I just hate scary things. But most of the blogs that I follow are American and halloween is a b.i.g. d.e.a.l over there! I so wanted to be part of the seasonal fun without all the sinister stuff so I took part in this competition to carve a pumpkin.

Here is my carved pumpkin! I have never ever carved one before because it was too halloween-y but I just LOVE pumpkins as decorations- why shouldn't I use one as a lantern?! And I carved this quote from Anne of Green Gables on it (you couldn't get further away from halloween than Anne of GG could you?!).

And here is a picture of what the words actually look like because the thing with a pumpkin is that you can't see all the way round in one picture can you? Also, I need a new camera. I really struggled to take pictures in the dark, they all came out really grainy. Although it might be me, rather than the camera.

Anyway, happy autumn!

a very exciting day in our house!

So i have been away from blogging and selling in my shop recently because of this! It's one of the books that I've been illustrating for 10ofthose and it arrived in the warehouse today! I am super duper excited because although I've illustrated a few things, this is the first BOOK that I have done that's been published and boy I really do love it! 

It's so strange seeing the things I've been staring at on my computer screen for months actually physically in print!!!So here it is, The Mystery of the Missing Spots, it's about Naaman from the Bible. We've got a few of these 'mystery' books on the go, and I can't wait to share them all with you! You can buy it here and it's only £3.99! Bargain!
